NVIDIA Datacentre GPUs

Powering the ultimate servers for delivering professional graphics

How to Choose the Perfect Datacentre GPU

The GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) accelerator or graphics card is the most important component in a server designed to deliver a professional graphics platform from a centralised datacentre location. Datacentre GPUs are passively cooled cards designed for 19in rack servers, providing high performance compute for workloads such as deep learning and AI, HPC, rendering and simulations. The choice of GPU will determine the overall performance and perhaps more importantly the number of concurrent users that can be supported without loss of integrity in the graphics quality. The server could be supporting shared graphics for a workgroup or delivering a larger virtual service for an entire organisation such as NVIDIA Virtual PC (vPC), Virtual Workstation (vWS) or Omniverse. NVIDIA professional GPUs are specifically designed to cope with these high-performance workloads and have several attributes that set them apart from their consumer counterparts.
